Chicago Is a remarkable city. It de

Insanity plea was urged with sunicient
effect to save hha from the gallows.
The jury disagreed, and another jury had
to be euipaunclled. In the meantime
Davis comes Into court, pleads guilty to
the charge of manslaughter, and Is sen
tenced to the ietiltentlary for a

the punishment for hW crime was death,

Here is a very respectable commence

outlays remain untouched. Wc refer to
expenditures on account ol our courts

these, no less than $15,000 to $1X,000 i
expended annually. In what way the out

As a matter of course, the so-called
'amnesty debate" in congress during the
WePK juh paseu nm w,u the chief topic
of conversation In public and private cir
cles ; and, uion tho whole, the revival of
old sores Is considered unfortunate and
unnecessary by all thinking men, with
out prejudice or bias, of cither party.

hour of theMj exciting debates, should
sum up the whole ellect in a few word',
I would quote the Unguago of the Hon
m. Morrison, ot Illinois, chairman of
the Ways and Menus Committee, who.
dicus-dng this subject n day or two ago
Willi some ol his collegues, said : "Well,
there Is Jut this about it, that wlienver

This curious auction commenced to
day, nnd will be coutluuid for nt lea-t a
month to come, until nil the articles had
been dl'po'ed of. As a matter of curi
osity, I went there, mid found the auction-rooms
crowded to their utmost ca
pacity lully half an hour !cfor' the sale
wa to commence. The audience
was n "mixed" one, composed of i
all classes r.nd both sexes, witho"'
r.igard to nze, color and previous condi
tion of.-ervltude; there-wet u peoplo
who, like your correspondent, were
guided only by curiosity ; jtcoplu who
came to buy on "pee. ;" others w ho,
having a little money to Invest, thought
this would be a go-d opportunity to get
birthday present, lor some friend or
other, cheap ; and a large number who
came simply becau-e others came, and
who wanted merely to ,ce "what wa the
matter." Those who came to buy on
speculation, to sell again mioHi lews
and keepers ol 'ceon Miami clothing
stores and pawn-hops), were busily por
ing over their catalogue, niaiklng tin
lots on which they intended to Mil ; and
at prceJ"cy twelve o'clock the sale com-
menced with "lot Xo. 1 tu'n necktie;,"
whleli were knocked down at 20 cents.
Lot Xo. -, "one pair of brace-," went lor
l.j cents; and Lot No. 3, "one lianuoni-
con,' brought the fabulous ?um of one
dollar. Twenty-two machine, needles
and one bodkin were ollered in one lot
(Mo. Sit), and brought live cents. Light
odd kid gloves were bought bv :i one-
armed soldier for twentv-livu cents for
the lot: but, thru, liu had no competi
tion! One lace collar was put up (Lot
Xo. 107), and was knocked down at
thirty-eight cents, when It was discov
ered that it was real point lace, worth at
least thirty dollars. The lucky pur
chaser, (a colored woman with a baby in
her arms) sold It on the spot for llfteen
dollars, and, I venture to say, will invest
every cent of that tlfteen dollars at the
sale lu the hope of buying some more
real lace collars.
The sale created a furore, anil bids ran
somewhat higher and were more spir
ited. The auctioneer hold the articles to
lie .-old, one by one, up in Ids hand, in
full view of the audience ; hut nobody ex
cept the auctioneer and his assistants
were permitted to handle them until af
ter they were sold. Presently, a lady's
pocket hankcichlef was put up ; It looked
yellowl-li and dirty, nnd the auctioneer
suggested that It must be lace. The hid
was tnrtedntr0cent', and through 75
cents, lumped up to a dollar, dollar und
u half, two dollars, two and n half, three
dollar", three and a half, four dol
lar', up it went till It reached seven dol
lars, when It waj knockd down and
found to be the common"-! kind of Imi
tation, worth but thirty or forty cent'.
